Summertime, the weather announces it each day, soon June, July, warmth! Can't wait for the summer holiday.

Rolling Stone magazine ranked Janis Joplin number 46 on its list of the 100 Greatest Artists of All Time in 2004, and number 28 on its 2008 list of 100 Greatest Singers of All Time, so I believe she deserves a place within my list.

And as instrument I chose the Jouhikko, a bowed lyre of Finland with the following sound:



I don't know Janis Joplin's music, but I always felt sorry she died young.
The song they played on the Jouhikko sounded a bit like, "It's a Small World After All." :)

Jouhikko - what an amazing word!! Although she is of my era, I wasn't quite so much into Janis Joplin, but it was very sad that she died so young.

Glad you enjoyed my choices for today :)

Thank you for the very sweet comment you left on my blog, Claudia :)

I too wasn't a follower of Janis Joplin's music, but it's always a tragedy when someone dies so young.

I hope you have a lovely weekend!

I am with Karen on the Bobby McGee tune. We are learning about things we've never seen before. Good post my friend.

Never heard of a Johikko before but love it's name! I love Janis Joplin's voice.. Bon week-end :)

Ahh she is SUCH a classic! Great choice for "J."

Janis is one of my all time favorites...Joss Stone is another great J singer. She and Mellissa Etheridge did a duet tribute to Janis...you can find it on youtube.

"A story is not like a road to follow … it's more like a house. You go inside and stay there for a while, wandering back and forth and settling where you like and discovering how the room and corridors relate to each other, how the world outside is altered by being viewed from these windows. And you, the visitor, the reader, are altered as well by being in this enclosed space, whether it is ample and easy or full of crooked turns, or sparsely or opulently furnished. You can go back again and again, and the house, the story, always contains more than you saw the last time. It also has a sturdy sense of itself of being built out of its own necessity, not just to shelter or beguile you."
